thanks for the tip!! that definitely helped.
now the last piece is that my caption overlay is not working in ie6.
take a look at the site in another browser and you will see that there is a semi-transparent caption div that floats over the bottom of the main image. when you roll over it, the caption div slides up to reveal the caption.
in ie6, it looks like that div is at the bottom of the carousel.
any ideas on how to make that work in ie6?
